Join Bryant Park Corp. at this weekly series featuring accordionists as well as bandoneon, bayan, concertina, and harmonium-players of different musical genres. Audiences have an opportunity to hear music from all over the world and to experience the wide range of this often overlooked and little-known instrument. The finale is Accordion Festival, a five-hour celebration of bands with at least one accordionist.
